Hemp seeds have been a popular superfood on the market for quite sometime, but what are the real benefits to adding them into our diets? For starters, they’re a complete protein meaning they contain an adequate proportion of all nine essential amino acids necessary for the dietary needs of humans. Hemp seeds offer increased energy, effective appetite and weight management, healthy digestion and cellular recovery and development. Hemp seeds have greater benefits for women offering anemic and iron deficiency treatment, reduced symptoms of PMS, maintain skin health (specifically eczema) and excellent source of nutrients for breastfeeding.
